Artful Evening Graphic
FCC Hosting An Artful Evening and Distinguished Artist Awards on Nov. 5
Frederick Community College will host a faculty art exhibit, faculty music recital, student theater performance, and an awards ceremony – all in one night!
Members of the public are invited to attend An Artful Evening and the Distinguished Artist Awards on Saturday, November 5 in the Visual & Performing Arts Center on the FCC main campus.
Distinguished Artist Awards will be presented by faculty members to FCC alumni in the areas of art, drama, film, graphic design, and music. There will also be a Patron of the Arts award.
“This event is held every three years to showcase the incredible artistic talents of our faculty and students, and to honor outstanding arts alumni who are using all they learned at FCC in their successful post-college careers,” said Wendell Poindexter, FCC Program Manager of Art. “What better way to spend an evening than by enjoying art, music, theater, and more, together in one place?”
